Temperature 78 Degrees

Fantastic Afternoon with Great Friends

Weather wise today was definitely vastly different from yesterday.

It was cool, wet, and windy. Moreover, the weather report is for more of the same for the next several days. Ah well, into every life a little rain must fall.

Be that as it may the afternoon was absolutely fantastic.

We love any time we can spend with Dennis and Pam. We absolutely cherish our friendship with them. I’m not sure, but I believe we’ve known each other now for close to four years.

Once again Pam did not disappoint when it came to supper. She loves to cook and the food she sets before you proves it. Today, she made baked ziti and I had two helpings and could have gone for a third; but, I decided I would be a gentleman and refrain from eating the whole pan. Oh yes, it was that good. And the cheesy garlic bread that she made with it, oh my what a meal.

So we spent the afternoon sharing stories, talking about this and that, and just enjoying our time together. An absolutely perfect afternoon. I mean what is more important than friends and family. The two are worth more than all the gold in the world.

Update on our house.

Our house inspection is done. Items on the list that needed to be corrected have been corrected or are in the process of being corrected. Our mortgage has been approved. We’re getting close to the finish line. We will probably close sometime in the middle of April.

We’re getting excited about our new digs. But again, make no mistake about it this does not mean we are coming off the road. This year we’ll probably spend a good deal of time at the house following my three months of treatment. But next year we have new adventures already planned. We believe we now have the best of both worlds. A place to hang our hat while in Florida for the winter. A great rig to put miles of smiles on our faces.

That was our day on The Road of Retirement. We could not have thought of a better way to spend the afternoon then spending it with Pam and Dennis. Thank you friends for a wonderful afternoon.

Thanks for taking the time to read our blog.  We always appreciate your company, your comments, and your suggestions. Keep safe, keep healthy, live to the fullest the days that God gives you.

These are the voyages of  Elvira and her two intrepid travelers.  Our continuing mission: to explore as many new states as possible, to seek out new acquaintances and make new friends, to boldly go where we have never been before.

See you on down the road!
